- As a school we are working on achieving Phase 5 of the Healthy Schools Award this year. In line with policy we are encouraging children to only bring water to be drank throughout the day in water bottles, a healthy lunchbox (including one treat of either chocolate, crisps or a biscuit) and to only eat fruit or vegetables at snack time.
Please ensure that you read with your child every day where possible and keep a log of this in the home-school reading diary. It is essential for ensuring progress at this early stage of development and every little helps.
Spelling tests– Your child will have a small list of spellings to practise each week. These will be set on Google Classroom every Thursday and tested the following Thursday.
Homework - the homework timetable can be found on our Google Classroom. Information regarding homework can also be found on our Google Classroom.
P.E.: Our P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday further notice. Please send children into school wearing their p.E kits. Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with your child’s name.
Labelling clothes: Please could you ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name. This prevents confusion and ensures that items are easily returned if misplaced.

How Can I Help at Home?
It is essential that you read with your child on a daily basis. We would encourage you to practise reading their key words along with their reading books. Please ensure that these are brought to school, along with your child's reading diary everyday. As well as reading key word cards and books at home. It is also important that you ask questions about the texts that are being read in order to develop their comprehension skills.
Spellings are assessed weekly with your child on a Monday. It would be beneficial for your children to practise writing these words within full sentences to enhance their writing skills. Remember to start each sentence with a capital letter and finish with a full stop.
Homework is an important part of your child's learning. As well as helping them to gain independence, it also gives your child a chance to practise skills they have learned at school on an individual basis. If there are any questions about the homework set, Please feel free to comment on the assignment on Google Classroom.
Mental maths skills are practised daily at school, but you can help at home by playing any of the maths games on the following websites:
Llythyrau a Synau / Letters and Sounds
Letters and Sounds is a Phonics programme that aims to build your child's skills in speaking and listening. Letters and Sounds is taught daily and prepares children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge. Letters and Sounds are taught in Phases and your child is introduced to the sounds with actions and also encourages sound talk to break up the sounds in to words and blend (put the sounds together) to read.
More information about Letters and Sounds can be found by visiting the following web pages including some interactive resources to practise learning at home:
